Automatic, fast & secure - ARCA-compatible!
The concept was designed for easy handling and compact design. The Q=BASE II allows a one-click automatic and secure fixation of the inserted plate, the final clamping is done manually with a single handle on the locking ring.
Special emphasis has been put on easy handling and a more compact and lightweight design. The weight of the new model could be reduced to 120g (0.3lbs), compared to the 265g (0.6lbs) of the previous model. This feature will make the new Q=BASE II even more interesting to owners of compact system cameras.
This successful combination of automatic basic function and manual detection gives the user an optimal control over the fixation of the valuable camera.
In addition, a "Safety Pin" prevents inadvertent slipping into any possible direction.
For the Q=BASE II quick coupling, various coupling plates (Q=PLATEs) are available in different versions (not included in the scope of delivery). The coupling plates can be found here.
In addition, it is also possible to use the ARCA-compatible coupling plates of many other manufacturers, but the safety pin function is only available in conjunction with original NOVOFLEX Q=PLATEs.
